LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Politicians aren’t accountable for actions
Question of the Day
Are you tired of the lies that are coming out of Washington? Have you heard one congressman or senator say, “It is partly my fault that the country is in the situation it is in”? No. Politicians blame everyone except themselves.
I would like to hear just one say, “Yes, I voted to borrow money from another country and to keep spending more money than we take in so I could get re-elected.” This country should be the bank, not the borrower. Remember the old saying, “The borrower is slave to the lender”?
In my opinion, every member of Congress who voted to borrow money from China or from any other country should be removed from office. I put them in the same category as Benedict Arnold. They are not the patriots we think they are.
I guess our flag and paper money will someday read “In money we trust.” Greed will destroy us. The people running for president are the same ones who put us in this position - and now they want to be in charge?
